killed on 9/11, 24 from canada, around 41 from india, 24 japan, 5 israelis, 10 italians. when you think 41 indians, but when you read each profile of every single person who died and you hear about this young man who was killed on 9/11 and his wife who committed suicide shortly afterwards, or you read about a japanese father who was so bereaved by his son's death that he's written "ode to the souls of 9/11" beautiful poetry. it becomes numbers until you look at the actualnd individual. because britain has the largest number opeople they actually have a garden in manhattan that's called the british garden at tenover square. that's their memorial site. earlier this year in july the queen was here and officially opened this garden. they have a fence in the garden and they have finials, 67 finials which are orbs on the op of poles in the shape of the symbol of the united kingdom. and they're goldplated. the 67 represent the 67 british subjects that were killed and there will be a ceremony there today. >> we talk about how the rest of the world might be looking at it. i think we're seeing v

in monrewl canada has been speaking to a group and advocating very strongly that 190 countries take the next store up in airport screening by advocating the use of these full body scanners. in an interview with usa today she said we need to move to the next stage of screenings. there continues to be a threat stream about taking down a commercial airliner in part because it was used successfully before and could have a huge impact. just to give you context here. if there is a piece of advice i've had over the years it's like terrorism is like water it takes the path of least resistance and we are dealing with a thinking enemy. they understand the type of improvements we've made for the screening process, that's why we saw the evolution in the type of attack with the attempted bombing on christmas day, with the underwear -- with the bomb concealed in the underwear. that is an evolution in the tactic and it's also an indicator that when it comes to airline security al-qaida and others are watching what we are doing, they are trying to take steps to circumvent that security which is why the secr

indian airlines flight was hijacked in canada are -- kandahar. if pakistan is the key to afghanistan come into holds the key to pakistan, but the bush administration i think was already predisposed to building up india as a kind of way to china and quickly realized also that india was going to be a very important player in the war on terror. said the bush administration launched this massive diplomatic exercise that culminated in the u.s. indian nuclear deal. if you look at the relationship from about 2005, it improves dramatically. in fact, the rhetoric about cross border infiltrations reduces a lot of positive things that happened until of course the 2008 mumbai attacks and that impetus is lost. whether the u.s. in india nuclear deal brought in essence to u.s. policy with respect to afghanistan, pakistan remains -- it is somewhat speculative. it is something i think has been on the minds of a lot of people thinking about weapon sales. can weapons salsa they provide the united states with some latitude when it comes to u.s. policy toward afghanistan and pakistan. this is particularly imp
